What are Essential Oils?
In a nutshell, essential oils are compounds that are obtained from plant material (flowers, seeds, bark, rind, and leaves) and distilled for their health benefits. Plants have been used for their therapeutic benefits since 3500 BC.
Essential oils are highly concentrated and very potent. In fact, they are 50-70 times more powerful than herbs and one drop of peppermint oil equates to 28 cups of peppermint tea. Speaking of peppermint oil…let’s chat about it!
Research shows that essential oils contain properties that are crucial to the plants survival. We have found that when we use essential oils, we can enjoy similar benefits. Essential oils contain properties that help with sleep & relaxation, mood management, respiratory health, focus & mental clarity, digestive health, immune system support, seasonal threats, inflammation, clear/healthy skin, and SO MUCH MORE.
A great thing about essential oils is that you do not become immune to their benefits. I am not sure if you have ever had this experience…I know I have when I was taking the OTC sleep medicine…I began needing more and more of the medication to get the same effects. That is not the case with essential oils! Because there are hundreds of different compounds in the oils, this provides complex and versatile abilities to combat threats WITHOUT building up resistance.
Additionally, you feel the results almost instantaneously! Rather than waiting 30-45 minutes (and sometimes even weeks or a month for some) for your medicine to take effect, you can feel a difference in about 30 seconds-2 minutes. For those of us that don’t like to wait, the instant gratification experienced by essential oils is a beautiful thing!
So, Why dōTERRA?
This is probably the question I get asked most often when sharing Essential Oils.
There are new essential oil companies popping up daily, hundreds of different oils, & lots of different teams. Talk about confusing!
I have used dōTERRA essential oils exclusively for the past two years because essential oil quality MATTERS. If you’ve been using a “bargain brand” and haven’t been getting results, there’s probably a reason why.
NOT ALL OILS ARE CREATED EQUAL!
Co-Impact Sourcing: One of the reasons I chose dōTERRA is because of the Co-Impact Sourcing. dōTERRA sources its oils from all over the world so that each oil is derived from its indigenous environment. When they are grown and harvested in the proper altitude, climate, seasons, and soil, you end up with a far superior product. This is where dōTERRA’s commitment to purity begins!
Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG): The second main reason I chose dōTERRA is that the oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG). Each batch of dōTERRA essential oil undergoes seven different testing procedures by a third-party laboratory, and surpasses USDA organic standards. You can literally smell the difference the first time you take off the cap. This is REALLY important because each oil has ZERO fillers, synthetics, dyes, pesticides, or contaminants of any kind – just pure unadulterated oil. dōTERRA created this standard as a promise of purity and each and every batch is third party tested so you can be confident in not just their purity, but potency as well.
Healing Hands Foundation: In addition to sharing essential oils with the world, dōTERRA created the Healing Hands Foundation. dōTERRA is committed to improving lives through partnering with organizations that offer hope to millions around the world. The social-impact projects improve lives in the larger communities where oils are sourced. Past projects include building medical clinics, installing drinking water and irrigation systems, building schools, and providing other educational resources such as vocational training programs. Through the foundation’s efforts, lives are freed of disease and poverty and communities are empowered with the tools needed to become self-reliant. If I am going to partner with a company, it is extremely important to me that they have larger vision and are committed to giving back.
